Varmint

Specializing in Antique, Vintage, Collectibles and Rare Items Varmint XL-110 Mobile Tube Linear Amplifier AMP You are bidding on this VINTAGE Varmint XL- 110 Mobile Tube Type Linear Amplifier which is in good condition for it’s age. The Varmint was made in the early 1970’s by Brewer Labs which was located in Porter, Oklahoma. The unit uses duel (sweep-amp) power tubes along with duel (pill-amp) power transistors to obtain it’s high power output (apx 110 watts) to the antenna. While doing some research on the unit, I came across a good forum discussion of Varmint by past users and their feedback. Interesting reading and reviews about the unit: http://grumpy.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=AMPS&action=print&thread=2507 Since this is a vintage electronics item, it is sold AS IS, so bid accordingly! CONDITION: The inside of the unit is clean and all components look in good condition (See Pics). Their is no evidence of overheating or damaged electrical components. The input jack has had a little abuse (see pics) and is a tad loose. The electrical connections to it are fine and appear to have been re-soldered after, what I am guessing was, an accident in installing or removing the unit from a vichecle. The culprit is the rivets were loosened up from the housing by a bang or pull of a too tense cable. It could be better repaired by replacing a rivet or two with a small screw and nut, however I would just use it as it is and be gentle with connecting the cable as it is electrically connected well and the looseness is a mechanical mounting issue only. It is not so loose that it can break off, just a little loose from stretched rivets. The rivets are still attached. Fortunately, it is the low power (input) connector. The high power (output) connector is fine! Amazingly, the tubes DO light up (see pics) - they look VERY old & well used. They are black on front and back sides from pushing power in their day and as a result, the numbers are now blacken out. I did a little research and believe the tubes are duel 6kv6’s but don’t quite me on that. You will need to find out what they should be from your own research as I guarantee nothing on an electronic component of this age - SOLD AS IS! So Bid Accordingly! SIZE: 7” x 9 1/2” x 2 1/4”RETURN POLICY: If the item is not as described, we will refund your money if it is returned to us within 7 days of the delivery date.
